BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – 2-1-1 Brevard is collecting information to assist in the assessment of damage from Hurricane Matthew in Brevard County.

A decision has not been made on whether FEMA will provide assistance to individuals here.

If assistance becomes available, property owners will need to contact FEMA. Information on how to do that will be provided via Brevard County Emergency Management and 2-1-1 at that time.

2-1-1 Brevard Inc. is a private, not-for-profit organization serving Brevard County.

For more than 40 years, the organization has operated a telephone-based helpline offering crisis intervention and information and referral services, 24 hours a day.

Among the more than 42,000 phone calls that 2-1-1 Brevard fielded in 2015, only about one percent were classified as suicide prevention or intervention, yet that one percent translates into as many as 586 lives saved by this round-the-clock helpline that has been a go-to resource since its inception in 1963.

In addition to saving lives, 2-1-1 Brevard enhances the quality of life for thousands of Brevard residents by helping them address their need for food, shelter and mental health services.
